Running with MTC

As an England Athletics affiliated club, Manchester Triathlon Club has an extremely active running section. Our members compete in a wide variety of running events, either as competition in its own right and as training for multi-sport events. On this page we’ve included information about events that members like. We have dedicated pages regarding the Manchester Area Cross Country league which I would recommend all members take part in: Cross Country, England Athletics and  London Marathon.

Our running section is organised by our Running Coordinator Sonia Harris who maintains this section of the site. To contact Sonia please email running@manchestertriathlonclub.org.uk

Amongst other things Sonia handles the Manchester Area Cross Country League entries and the affiliations with England Athletics. If you want to compete in running events/leagues for Manchester Triathlon Club then you need to pay the small affiliation fee click here for more details.


TRACK: Within the club we operate track running sessions on Wednesday evenings at Longford Park/ Trafford Athletics Stadium, Ryebank Road, Chorlton-cum-Hardy, Manchester, M21 9TA Run (Track) Longford Park Stadium. We have three groups running according to your current running form- so you will find one of these suitable, click here for more details.

CLUB RUNS: – this year we are offering 3 club runs away from the track. They will initially be run by 2 volunteers per session so no one gets left behind. Please join the Manchester Triathlon Club – Club Runs closed Facebook group for more details: https://www.facebook.com/groups/795923720587795/

Cross Country

Manchester Area Cross Country League http://maccl.co.uk/

We enter male and female teams into this fabulous league with 5 races per season running from Oct-Feb. It is a great social way to keep/ gain some running fitness over the winter.


Running Events

Below we’ve included a selection of running events that members like to compete in so you are always likely to see a few friendly faces, but please check race websites/ Runners World etc for confirmation of dates/ registering etc.  Please use our facebook closed group to share what races you are thinking about/ have entered so we can encourage a bit of MTC team support and it also makes racing a little more pleasurable with friends!!
